Ready for the adventure of a lifetime on the MS Expedition? No matter your age, a trip to Antarctica can be truly life changing. Massive, magnificent and unforgiving, Antarctica is a continent of superlatives that will leave your mind searching for words to describe it. Each day presents a new discovery, whether you’re cruising through ice-choked waterways, trekking through chattering penguin rookeries, or catching minkes and humpbacks breaching in the pristine waters. The few travellers who are fortunate enough to explore Antarctica’s vast expanses return home forever changed by an experience so awe-inspiring that it reaches to their very core.

Seals

The third largest penguin species, Gentoos are among the most commonly photographed species on voyages to Antarctica. They have a orange-red beak and white patch over their eyes. Some lucky expeditions spot Emperor penguins around Antarctica. These are the grandest of all penguins, made famous in movies like "March of the Penguins". To see an Emperor penguin in the wild is to achieve something few other people have, or will ever, accomplish. Whale sightings are common on any voyage to Antarctica, but the species spotted changes with each departure. Hunting pods of Orcas may be spotted and Minke and Humpback whales are common. Getting close to Blue whales or Fin whales is also possible! The Elephant seal is found on South Georgia and was once almost hunted to extinction. These odd longing creatures have been known to weigh more than 10,000 pounds! These seemingly happy and smiling Weddell Seals, these quintessential seals live further south in Antarctica than any other mammal in the world.

MS Expedition

 MS Expedition

The MS Expedition provides an intimate small-ship cruising experience. Completely refurbished in 2009, she boasts spacious cabins, each featuring ocean-facing windows or portholes and private en-suite facilities. Large common areas and observation decks provide panoramic views of the distinctive landscapes of some of the world's most remote regions. The Expedition's spacious confines can hold as many as 140 passengers, but our commitment to keeping group sizes small means you'll never have to share it with more than 131 others. Many expedition cruise operators offer you a choice of space, comfort or expertise; the MS Expedition delivers all three at a price few can top.

Unlike many expedition ships, where public space is at a premium, the MS Expedition has multiple large public areas to enjoy during sea crossings and in between land excursions. Amenities include:

• 360° Observation Deck 
• Fleet of 14 zodiacs with four stroke engines
• Complimentary Wellington Boots for duration of your cruise
• Complimentary destination guides for every passenger
• Large headed Mud Room
• Lonely Planet Library
• Discovery Lounge
• Large aft deck with barbeque facilities
• Polar Bear Pub
• Gift Shop
• Medical Clinic
• Sauna
• Computer Room with internet (where available)
• Gym
• Mobile phones for rent

The Crew The MS Expedition has one of the highest ratios of expedition team members to guests – with one expert for every 10 guests there is always someone on hand to answer your questions and provide greater insight and appreciation of the world at its extremes. The expedition team is comprised of professional and highly skilled historians, marine biologists, and naturalists who offer keen insight and a unique personal perspective to each and every adventure.
